Tom Petty — Magnolia lyrics

By Tom Petty

From a table across the room
She was signaling me with her eyes
I walked over to be introduced
I said hello, she just smiled
And said I know a place not too far from here
We could get away for awhile
Yeah, that's when she kissed me and told me her name
I never did tell her mine

Magnolia
I remember the smell of the wind through the sweet
Magnolia
And I know that she's out there somewhere in the world
She's forgotten me but I remember her
Magnolia

Well her lips were as warm
As that wet southern night
Her eyes were as black as the sky
And I wondered aloud
Just what I done right
As I lay there with her by my side
Then she took hold of my hand As she looked up at me
And said now I must tell you goodbye
And there in the moonlight
As I watched her leave
I felt a chill down inside

Magnolia
I remember the smell of the wind through the sweet
Magnolia
And I know that she's out there somewhere in the world
She's forgotten me but I remember her
